I hope all of you are enjoying Spring Break. Once we return from break our days will be on the fast track! Thanks to all who took the time to participate in the School Improvement survey last month. These results will be used to create our goals for next school year. Our Career Day was a success. We appreciate all of the community members who took time to share their careers with our students.
Summer School information is available for all students. This is an excellent opportunity to make up credits to stay on track to graduate. Summer School will run from May 31st until June 16th from 7:30-11:30. Go to the NPHS website and click on INFO, the application is located in the Document library. Please contact the office if you have any questions. Applications are due April 12th.
This is an exciting time for us with the renovation and you will notice some changes when you return to school tomorrow. Door W-3 (pool doors), S-4 (auditorium doors) and E-1 (side Science hallway doors) will be closed. Door S-3 (end of the Science hallway) will only be open for ½ hour before and after school. Please use doors W-2 (main entrance) and S-6 (Athletic Office entrance) to enter our building. The parking lot and grass areas will have some fencing up. Please be extra careful navigating our school campus. We are going to put up with a few inconveniences to gain an amazing building for our students.
The ISTEP+ is Coming! All sophomores will be tested on April 18-21 for Part 2. Passing these tests will be a graduation requirement for the Class of 2019. We will continue to prepare a “well rounded” young adult having the skills to be successful beyond high school and meeting this state mandated benchmark is one step closer! Please take time to discuss the importance of this test with your student.
ISTEP ECA Retesters-All juniors and seniors who have not passed the Algebra 1 and/or English 10 state requirement will be tested on April 26th and 27th.
Prom will be May 6th and students must have 90% attendance to attend. There are guest permission slip forms in the main office. Prom will be held at Heston Hills.
Reminder to seniors: You must be passing ALL graduation required courses on May 26, 2017 to participate in our graduation ceremony on June 4, 2017.
